Putin hopes Denmark will support Russian proposal to investigate Nord Stream explosion

Official relations between Russia and Denmark go back 530 years

MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin expects Denmark to support Moscow’s proposal to set up a commission to find out what really happened at the Nord Stream pipeline.

"Today the Baltic Sea is quite turbulent, in the truest sense of the word. First of all, the sabotage acts occurred in September 2022 at the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 pipelines. We hope, Mr. Ambassador, that the Danish side will support our proposals to establish an independent international commission to ascertain all the circumstances of what happened," the head of state said on Wednesday during the ceremony of accepting foreign envoys’ credentials.

Official relations between Russia and Denmark go back 530 years. "Reigning dynasties of the two countries even had family connections in their time. It is known that Maria Fyodorovna, the spouse of Emperor Alexander III, was of Danish descent. That is, our countries have always been historically close, behaving themselves as good neighbors in the Baltic Region," Putin added.
